Thank you for reading. First time poster on this site, which I've found to be a knowledgeable and impressive powerlifting community. This log will chronicle my training for raw powerlifting. I compete as a 198 in the USAPL and will remain at that weight (or 205 depending on how class changes are adopted here) for the foreseeable future.
The log begins with a new training cycle that will carry me through the end of the year. I've returned from a honeymoon abroad, and have taken two weeks off from training. Feeling fresher than I have in a long while, and very eager to attack some weights.
Today's session was pulls. The bar drifted a little on the top set, but the weight is not heavy so nothing was a grind. I am anticipating that the explosive pulls after the heavier pulls will help consolidate and improve technique quickly as the weights increase.
